Streets isn't in the centre of Stalingrad, even so, the Soviets had tank factories all over and they kept them going while under siege wherever they could produce them. It's meant to show the desperation of the situation. If that makes you cry then you're a waste of time

-The custom maps have sometimes no minimap
-And when they have minimap it sucks and have no objectives painted in (ok, sorry for my english!)
-Download time
-And the worst of the reasons...ladies and gentlemens... beacuse they think that the majority of people leaves the full server when it goes on custom map!

Mix these reasons together and you'll know why.

The ideal would be automatic download for the final version ones and optional download for the beta version ones (yes, also the ones that are ok but have a bad minimap).

Looking at your statements above I have to ask have you actually played many custom maps ?


Gameplay wise they're amongst the best for game play

Please TWI use the uz3, it's fast download and help redirect server band width traffic

Actually, I blame UE and TWI for the constant redownload problem. A simple edit of the default ini files fixes having to redownload too often. Mr. Moe should probably add that to his list of reasons as well.....
So Epic messed up the UE and thats my fault..

For me the only crappy map is that winter map with the big *** warehouse in the german spawn, with the crashed plane in it. Seriously.. the map layout is terrible. If you ever imagined what it would be if there was map thats just flat ground - well, thats the perfect map for you. Just 10% of the whole map are more "complex" while the other is just one big flat ground. Its great for bolt action rifles, but besides that its very boring map. The first 5-10 min when the attackers have to climb up the hill to the trenches are awesome and after that its painfully boring.

Rakowice. It's a reboot of an RO1 map, and it's worth pointing out that it's supposed to have half tracks.

Dude, racowice is awesome, and it is a riflemans map, something people in the community complain we don't have enough of.

The vast majority of them were transferred far away (even behind the urals), but some of them remained, beacuse they were too big to be transferred, like the tractor factory in Stalingrad.

However, the russians blew up every factory and even sown their fields with sunflowers to prevent their resources to fall into enemy hands, so, if the tractor factory (one of the biggest of the USSR) had been at risk of falling into enemy hands (like it happens in "streets") they would have certainly destroyed it. And now let me cry

If I see an half-full custom map server, I am the first to join it.
I like some maps and I hate other maps, but it is a matter of tastes.

re: streets this cracking map
re(minimap): I think a good minimap is important when you play a map for the first time (first 1-2 minutes).
Then there's recon, arty marks and other important things that I can do better, with a good minimap.
This doesn't mean that I don't want to play maps with bad minimaps, but I get annoyed if I play a map WITHOUT minimap.

re "streets this cracking map": what do you mean for "cracking map"? I don't speak english very well, so i don't know this slang.

I never said it isn't rifleman map. I even pointed that out But still there are better rifleman focused maps out there.

You do all realize that Rattlers view on the game is through a very, very small window? As he's told us before, he only plays as Axis, only RO2 maps and also apparently, only stock maps.

Hardly the opinions of a well rounded and experienced player.

Rackowice is a great map.

It is a great map, and unless I am wrong, it is no longer a custom map but official, so why is it mentioned at all here?

I may play as Axis only but I play on Campaign only since it was added into the game so it really doesn't matter which side I pick because I play through the Allies point of view too. The only difference is the player skins, which is not relevant to the maps. I experience them both as attacker and defender, making your Axis only argument invalid.

Also I never said I never play custom maps. I play custom maps from time to time

@ RoFanatic, I am waiting for IC:V release to change the appearance of my profile so you can start calling me USA fanboy :P
